April 28 is Small Business Day at Nevada Legislature

Operators of small businesses can meet their counterparts and speak their minds to state lawmakers at a Small Business Day gathering in Carson City on Friday, April 28.

National Federation of Independent Business says legislators from both political parties will show up to hear directly from Nevada’s businesses.

“It’s a two-way conversation about the 2017 legislative session so far,” said State NFIB Director Randi Thompson. “The legislators will also share their perspective with the business owners.”

Thompson will offer an overview of key bills affecting business. Among the pending bills with a fiscal impact on business, she will discuss Senate Bill 106, which would increase minimum wage by 75 cents per year over five years, or until Nevada’s minimum wage reaches $12 per hour. There are several bills mandating changes to health benefits, and requiring paid leave, including paid leave for victims of domestic violence.

The breakfast presentation starts at 7:30 a.m. in room 3100 at the legislature. NFIB has more information about the event on its website.
